This was a great day - sunny and the water was quite flat. My battery conked out after the second hour, otherwise I would have shots of the copper mine shaft, long abandoned - but still an impressive one man operation on the shore of Gasters Bay. The decision was made to head towards the lighthouse - this turned out to be a lucky choice. A bit cooler, bit of wind but the caplin were on the run and 3-4 minke whales were having quite a time scooping them up. They rose and dove among the kayaks - never completely surfacing but still putting on quite a show.
